A Very Merry Christmas

We had a lovely Christmas with the Greiving family up in Estes Park, CO. A friend of ours has an aunt who owns a cabin up there and we were all able to squeeze in for the weekend. We consumed tons of donuts from Donut Haus (our favorite!), played many games of Nertz, picture telephone, & Bananagrams, ate TONS of good food (the running joke from the weekend: "This vacation would be perfect if only we had some food"), made fun of the boys for their obsessive playing of Jetpack on the iPad, and had an absolutely wonderful time.

Now we're back at home and getting ready to MOVE again! Our lease was up for renewal and we decided to try and find something with a bit more space and a bit more modern. We found a place with double the square footage that was actually built in the last century (our current house was built in 1891 and the new place was built in 1925!). I can't wait to share photos of the new place, but in the meantime, you'll have to settle for pics from our Christmas.

And these last two of Will and his cousin Peter chilling in the recliner - I love this! We're so blessed that Peter lives close by and that he and Will have the chance to hang out.

Happy New Year!

Oh good grief. I click over to my little blog and realize I haven't updated since October. OCTOBER?! How is that even possible? So much has happened since then! Let me update. With pictures.
Here's my little Michelin Man in the bath in early November

November: We went to Atlanta to visit my parents and see the family. Forgive me - this is a picture heavy blog!

Paw-Paw and Will became good buddies - they hadn't seen each other since Will was a few weeks old!
